- Search through bookmarks to quickly find desired information.

- Save a screenshot of a website and see how it has changed over time.

- Annotate websites with highlighting or virtual "sticky notes."

- View any annotations made by others on any website visited.

- Share websites with groups or the entire Diigo social network.

What a School Librarian Can Do For You

Attn: Classroom teachers - If you are in the trenches doing the job, you already know this. You’ve got lessons to plan, individualized instruction to prepare, data to record, and attendance at the various PLC meetings that are supposed to help you get better at doing all of it. Where is there time in all of this to learn new technology to integrate into your classrooms?

Media specialists create instructional hubs - Gainesville Times

Media specialists create instructional hubs - Gainesville Times | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it

"A new breed of library warrants a new breed of librarian.....Correction — media specialist. Hall County staffs a media specialist at each school throughout the district, charged with not only running the media center, but acting as a facilitator to incorporate new technology into the classroom. Even five years ago, school libraries were just that: a place to check out books. Now schools boast media centers, making them the technological and informational hubs of the school."

School Librarians’ Leadership in Technology Integration: Results of a National Survey

School Librarians’ Leadership in Technology Integration: Results of a National Survey | School libraries for information literacy and learning! | Scoop.it

This current grant project includes a survey of the technology integration practices of school librarians with National Board Certification. Survey results revealed that the 295 respondents work in well-resourced libraries with personnel assistance as well as numerous computers and devices. Respondents reported that they led school technology integration in many areas but also had areas in which to improve, such as providing services to special needs learners, building digital collections, participating in student assessment, and transferring their leadership success to professional and local communities.

My role as the Teacher Librarian offered me the understanding and initiatives through the wide range of external TL PD and the opportunities in the job itself, to become the school's Learning Technologies Coordinator.I enjoyed this position for 5 years while the school staff went through a huge ICT learning curve! I retired in 2011 and subsequently was offered a part time professional position at another school training and inservicing staff to integrate learning technologies into their programs at the secondary school level.
